11:44pm
dream. >> he couldn't get the county permits he needed to dig a commercial pond next to the airport. it is stocked with fish and it was a clear hazard for planes. so frasier reapplied for a pond permit, and the request sailed through. and then he added a retail building and remodeled a residence and somewhere along the way built a shooting range facing the runway. he also offered fishing lessons. the county says he didn't have permits for any of this. >> so you are saying he is skirting the permit process in someways? >> i would hate to say that in a nutshell. he has found a way to break down barriers to achieve a goal? >> ben newman is the code enforcement manager. >> on the scale of cases you come across, he is sophisticatedment. >> yes, i would consider him a sophisticated applicant, yes. >> they say you had a very sophisticated method of trying to get around the permitting

11:47pm
there are more problems, and now the state department of transportation is taking aim at a fence he built to keep his fly fishing customers from wandering on to the runway. he says he built it in response to complaints from the airport. >> he took us in his plane for a better look at the ponds and the safety zone that falls on frasier's property. the fence slices through an area that should be kept clear to give planes extra space in an emergency. in july the dot sent the airport a letter giving notice that it is a violation of the public utility code and for flight and public safety we strongly recommend these fences be removed. >> why is that fence there? >> if it is a danger, we will definitely look into it and take care of it. >> but the clock is ticking for the airport. the dot will review their operating permit before the end of the year. if the fence doesn't come down by then, the dot could shut them down. >> they may say, well you can't fly from here anymore.
